MLS announced Wednesday morning that Sebastien Le Toux is the winner of the Xbox 360 Individual Fair Play Award for the 2010 season. The award goes to the player who exhibits the best sportsmanship and receives the least amount of yellow and red cards during the MLS regular season. Le Toux has never been shown a card in his MLS career.
In a statement on the Union’s website, Le Toux said, “I’m very flattered to win this award. It is proof of what I try to show on and off the field on a daily basis, as well as my respect to the MLS rules and the fans.”
The winner of the Rookie of the Year Award was also announced today. While Danny Mwanga lead the league’s rookies with seven goals and four assists, the award went to DC United’s Andy Najar.
Mwanga’s non selection will surely not sit well with Union supporters, many of whom thought that Le Toux had been unfairly snubbed by not being selected as one of the final three Most Valuable Player nominees.
